Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with John S, doing the traverse of Algonquin -> Iroquois from Heart Lake. Great weather, a little steep up past the Wright junction which was blood pumping. The traverse once on Algonquin was relatively easy and short. The views were stunning most of the way, except when in the swampy col.
